Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev started his two-day official visit to Serbia by meeting Serbian President Boris Tadic.

Aliyev was welcomed with the highest state honors by the Serbian president, Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic and Defense Minister Dragan Sutanovac.

Tadic and Aliyev will first have a private meeting, after which the two countries' delegations will hold a plenary meeting.

After the meeting, Aliyev and Tadic will hold a news conference. In the afternoon hours, the two presidents will open the renovated Tasmajdan Park, where they will plant a tree dedicated to friendship and unveil statues of former Azerbaijani president Heydar Aliyev and Serbian writer Milorad Pavic.

Belgrade Mayor Dragan Djilas will also attend the ceremonial opening of the park, which was renovated on the initiative of the city hall and the Azerbaijani government which donated EUR 2 million for that purpose.

Tadic and Aliyev will visit Novi Sad, where they will attend the unveiling of the monument to Azerbaijani composer Uzeyir Hajibeyov.

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, who arrives in Belgrade on a two-day visit, stated that he is of the opinion that it is absolutely impermissible to change the borders of a country without its prior consent. All countries should abide by international principles and standards.

Therefore, it is of immense importance that Azerbaijan and Serbia, the countries which are faced with separatism, one of the greatest threats to international security, offer to each other a support in the international organizations, as well as cooperate in countering secessionism, Aliyev underlined for daily Politika.

To a certain extent, our countries are faced with similar problems- the incapacity to realize a full sovereignty over the parts of their territory. For Serbia, that is Kosovo, and for Azerbaijan - Nagorno-Karabakh, Aliyev said, emphasizing that the conflict has to be resolved in conformity with the principles of territorial integrity and inviolability of state borders.

Underlining that the relations of Serbia and Azerbaijan are improving successfully, Aliyev added that Azerbaijan would like to launch joint investment projects with Serbia. I am of the opinion that in that respect our cooperation could be rather efficient and beneficial for both sides.

Joint investment projects could cover domains of energy, tourism, agriculture, information and telecommunication technologies, Aliyev added.

The cooperation with Azerbaijan might give Serbia an impetus for establishing cooperation with other neighbouring countries, since Azerbaijan has a rather advantageous geographical position, and has experienced a rapid economic development in the recent years, Aliyev said.
